Beta update – 23 Sep, 2022 @ 23:11 UTC

  • M868 Flamer Unit: Now slows marine movement when equipped, similar to the autogun.

  • Tech marines can now manually override the boot-up sequence of an unlocked computer that has downloadable data, and will automatically start the hack on a locked computer after 4 seconds.

There is now a release candidate branch, accessible via the “Betas” tab of game properties on Steam, which contains the same changes as the beta branch, but with the features that aren’t ready for release turned off. This branch will be available in the lead-up to a scheduled release. The next release will be on October 20th, Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop’s half-birthday.
